AFC Notes: Bengals, Browns, Steelers

     

Bengals

  • Bengals’ RB Giovani Bernard said of not having many carries through three games this season: “I don’t care about carries. I don’t care about anything other than winning.” (Ben Baby)
  • Bengals’ QB Joe Burrow mentioned that he was sacked on purpose to keep the clock running on Sunday: “The eight sacks is a little misleading.” (Baby)
  • Burrow knows that he will continue to take hits with the way he plays the game: “My style of play, I’m going to get hit.” (Baby)
  • Burrow says there is still chemistry to be developed with WR A.J. Green: “We’re just still learning each other — learning how he runs routes, learning where he expects the ball on certain leverage and technique by corners. It’s just a work in progress.” (Baby)
  • Burrow thinks that the Bengals are on the cusp of getting their first win of 2020: “Yeah, we’re very confident in ourselves. We have to have a great week of practice … Week in and week out we expect to win.” (Tyler Dragon)
  • Bengals’ HC Zac Taylor said of the position battle at right guard: “We’re still working through it.” (Baby)
  • Taylor told reporters that DT Geno Atkins will practice today: “Hopeful, as always, we will take it day to day.” (Paul Dehner Jr.)

Browns

  • Browns’ QB Baker Mayfield spoke about a potential shootout between himself and Cowboys’ QB Dak Prescott: “When it comes down to it, we are playing the Cowboys defense. We have to do whatever it takes to win. If that is a shootout then great. If it’s another game where we have to control the clock then we will do that. Whatever it takes to win.” (Mary Kay Cabot)

Steelers

  • Steelers’ DL Stephon Tuitt on the uncertainty surrounding Week 4 against the Dolphins: “We’re going to continue to do this week as if there’s a game being played Sunday until we’re told otherwise.” (Brooke Pryor)
  • Tuitt also mentioned having to square off with Titans RB Derrick Henry: “Henry is a big back. He’s a big back with prolific speed. Our goal is to be able to stop him before he gets going.” (Pryor)
  • Steelers’ QB Ben Roethlisberger said he has always considered himself as a mobile quarterback: “I’ve always seen myself as a running QB. My eyes are always downfield because I’d rather throw it than run it. I’ve always said I’ve run for my life sometimes.” (Pryor)
